NEWSFLASH!
The November give away is here!!
The competition closes and the winner is announced on 30th November - details below!
THE MISSION - To promote fellow indie designers and tell everyone about their wonderful work and just how amazing they are. So what!? Why are we different? We have noticed that despite a high demand, there is lack of free representation for Indie designers in the UK, there are plenty of US sites, but what about when you want to reach an audience closer to home? So we are making it our business to fill the gap and get you designers and crafters seen - for free! Not from the UK but want to reach out to a new market? Thats ok, we'd love to feature you too.

THE ETHOS - Everyone benefits buying handmade. Fact. We know this and by the time we're finished the world will know it! Partners in Crime is about spreading the 'handmade' word, so come on - shout about it with us! We know that we don't know it all, and are always open to your suggestions to improving the site, so don't be shy.

THE PRODUCTS - Everything and anything handmade - the more unusual the better, we love discovering something completely different

Remember we need to work together to spread the word, so when you've been featured, tell everyone you know, to tell everyone they know, by linking back to us here, and before we know it- the whole world will know all about YOUR craft!

The Accidental Jeweller

Jo sort of fell into jewellery design after breaking one of her favourite necklaces. What began as a hobby has quickly grown into a small successful business - Gem Heaven. Jo says that "glass artisans creating unique and exciting lampwork and gemstones are my main obsession - mixing these beauties with sterling silver or gold filled is a fantastic journey I'm lucky enough to take everyday".

Having a studio in Cornwall ensures endless inspiration for Jo and she strives to capture the special organic nature that the ocean and the wilds of the moorland inspire, in every hand crafted piece.

Last year Jo took a silverwork course and now incorparates soldering and hand-forging within some pieces. More recently wire wrapping has become a feature in her work and she was thrilled to be voted onto the new Wireboutique.com website for handcrafted wire jewellery.
